Buy Crown Edward VII (1901-1910) Coins

Edward VII was born in 1841. The eldest son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, Edward was strictly educated as a child. As he grew up, however, he became rebellious and lived for pleasure. His womanising ways were a pain point for his parents, but he soon became the figurehead of London's high society and beloved by the nation. He spent most of his life as Prince of Wales under his mother's reign and had little to do with state affairs. His diplomacy, however, saw him building relationships between Britain and other European royal families. His reign lasted under ten years and he died in 1910, ending an opulent era for Britain.
